PS&S provided environmental consulting services to Turner Construction and STV, who were contracted by New York City Department of Design and Construction (NYC DDC). The $750 million new police academy campus for the New York City Police Department (NYPD) includes an academic facility, physical training facility, central utility plant, field house, running track and parking lot.
The challenging 35-acre construction site is a former car impoundment lot and wetlands that had been filled with debris and miscellaneous unconsolidated material. The site is bisected by a tidally influenced open drainage channel. The subsurface soil was contaminated by historic fill material. Additionally, elevated levels of methane were found during a pre-construction soil gas investigation.
